Grandin is one of the most famous names outside of Champagne for producing a sparkling style and the Grandin brand has elevated the Loire as a region for quality bubbly since 1886. Clearly showing the benefits of some time in the bottle, this sparkling wine has some attractive toasty, yeasty notes backed by some crisp green apple and lemony fruit with a creamy and well balance finish. An easy drinking sparkler with a little French flair.
In 1886, Henri Grandin, a notary and wine lover, married Madamoiselle Pouillet de Limesle, whose family owned the cellars of la Bouvraie in the old royal glassworks of Louis XIV, below a splendid Chateau at Ingrandes-sur-Loire. This region is known as le Jardin de la France, named as a tribute to a gentle and peaceful area that the kings of France had made their summer playground for centuries. The Grandin property today still consists of this stunningly picturesque Chateau and its cellars, producing an excellent quality in the purest tradition of the methode champenoise, now called methode traditionnelle.
Tasting Note: Grandin is infused with flowers, citrus freshness and a touch of yeast and toast aromas, Grandin sparkling is elegant with an exception bouquet and exquisite aroma.
